Joyful in the moment

The holiday season is peeking around the corner…

Events start moving fast in October–for our family, we celebrate two wedding anniversaries in mid-month, sweet Penny’s and Jack’s birthdays and then we roll right into November with four more birthdays followed by Thanksgiving. We are only 4 weeks out from Turkey Day! I am not trying to stress you out. Rather, I want to encourage you to steal a moment of peace through the madness.

Try to be present for each and every celebration in the coming months without dwelling on where you have to be next or your to-do list or your “haven’t done” list. Yes, it’s easier said than done. But take deep cleansing breaths and focus. You’ll only be there in that specific moment once.


Halloween is here and I would love to see the costumes your children/grandchildren/neighbors/nieces & nephews and godchildren are wearing. Will you send me some pictures? So much fun. I have such fond memories of my kids trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, even into their high school years! Somehow it became a tradition to eat chili dogs on Halloween night (might have to blame Sonic for this one) but I’m offering a delicious, savory chili with mini-cornbreads for you to pick up for a quick meal before your kids head out or for you to enjoy when you settle in to answer the door.

I’m also offering a Treat – Candy Corn Bark – such a cute, fun sweet to give to a hostess or teacher or your housekeeper! Breakfast is on the menu too and I need those orders quick–limited quantities available. See the menu-for-october-24.
Order online here.

Pick up times for 9800 Preston Road are listed on the menu — let me know what you think of the new layout! Thanks for your early orders and your loyal support of what we are doing here at Butterfield Gourmet.
